Fisch and Chips Podcast: Sink, Swim, or Tread

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

The Fisch and Chips Podcast returns to reset the landscape in each conference with a game called "Sink, Swim, or Tread." Bryan Fischer joins me to run through the Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, ACC and Big East, determining which preseason contenders still rank among the league's elite.

Some teams are still "swimming" -- on track to contend for a league title in November and December. Other teams are "sinking," and we pick out a few teams that are "treading" and need to improve in order to hang with their conference competition.

Tune in to hear the conference-by-conference discussion, but also a bonus game breakdown of Florida State and Clemson's Week 4 meeting and Notre Dame's chances to capitalize on the Michigan State victory and become a player in the BCS discussion.
